Casio outs HD–packing EX–FH20

With Samsung already riding high on the HD compact bandwagon, Casio has decided it wants in too, and has just announced the release of their sharp new

The new beefy snapper packs in some killer features, including 720p video shooting , like the Samsung NV100HD, as well as a frankly ridiculous 1000fps high–speed video mode for ultra–slow mo playback. Perfect for recording your Sunday kickabouts and pretending you’re on Match of the Day.

On top of all this movie goodness, the stills functions sound pretty neat too, with a 9.1MP sensor, 26mm wide angle lens and 40fps high speed burst shooting.

It’s got some rather neat, SLR–style looks too, so you can come over all pro even when you’re packing a compact. It’s due next month for a penny under £400. Will it make it into our compact cameras Top Ten? Stay tuned to to find out.
